Duke City

Albuquerque remains one of the state's secret jewels, as its tourist attractions are often overshadowed by the more popular holiday destination of Santa Fe. Albuquerque grew out of the New Mexico desert in the early 1700s. Founded as a small Spanish settlement on the banks of the Rio Grande River, the city has been the hub of the state's commerce since the 1880s. Boasting a colorful history and hospitable locals known for their love of storytelling and good food, the city features both an Old Town district and a new section, each with its own character and distinct architecture. Although a sprawling city, Albuquerque is relatively pedestrian and bicycle friendly, with a network of scenic trails running along the east side the Rio Grande.
